Why’s it gotta be our school that gets F’ed with?

BUtower.jpgCourtesy of Concurring Opinions, we’ve now learned the dirty, dirty truth behind the US News & World Report law school rankings. A leaked memo shows how the rankings are updated each year and sitting tied at twenty is good old Boston University. Only, it ain’t going to be sitting there for long, according to the handwritten note which reads:

Let’s drop them a five spots this year. We need to freak out at least one school each year.

Sure, this “leaked” memo might be, uhm, not so authentic. But the sad thing is, I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s actually how they put this shit together.

"Let’s drop them a five spots this year"

Maybe they just plan on mailing BU five dollars?
